Autumn has arrived! You know what that means…
Fall is known for being a transitional part of the year. Leaves begin to change colors, the air becomes a little crisper, as a familiar chill surrounds you. However, all of these wonderful things also mean that water damage issues are also in flux. While you might not always think about it, those beautiful, colorful leaves that gracefully fall off their trees, also are a big source of potential damage. Autumn leaves whether we like it or not, clog gutters and downspouts. Now, when substantial rainfall occurs, gutters will then overflow and spill water down exterior walls, which will then penetrate siding and infiltrating wall cavities. Unfortunately, indoor water damage and mold growth can happen as a result of this. That being said, make sure those gutters get cleaned! If you’re not comfortable doing the task yourself, there are plenty of qualified professionals that are willing to take care of it for you. Keeping on top of them can help you avoid a costly and time consuming issue later down the road.
